Fur Rendevous – Anchorage, Ak – Feb. 23 – March 4, 2018
Let’s get together in Alaska for one of the best snow shows in the country. When you visit Anchorage for the Fur Rondy, expect to watch the Snow Sculpture Competition in awe, and cheer on the racers in the World Championship Sled Dog Races (one of the country’s biggest and best). If wacky is what your tiny snow-lovers want, don’t miss the Running of the Reindeer (a slightly more mellow version of the Running of the Bulls), the Frostbite Footraces & Costume Fun Run and the Blanket Toss—an Alaskan tradition.
Travel Tip: Don’t forget to grab a Fur Rondy pin during your stay. They design a new one every year and are coveted by collectors.
